‘LAD’s potential’ recaptures the No. 1 spot in the West, ARI chases down an anti-game car…Wait for the reeling LAA-Ohtani!

The Los Angeles Dodgers are poised to regain first place in the district at the end of the first half.

The Dodgers won the home game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Dodger Stadium on the 7th (Korean time), 5-2 thanks to starter Julio Urias’ strong pitching and Freddy Freeman’s hard hitting.

The Dodgers, who won two consecutive victories, recorded 49-38 and reduced the gap with the Arizona Diamondbacks (50-38), the leader of the NL West, by 0.5 games. Arizona suffered a 0-9 loss to the New York Mets on the same day and fell into a four-game losing streak.

It is ahead of the San Francisco Giants (47-40), third in the district, by two games, and one game behind the Miami Marlins (51-38), second in the Eastern Division, in the wild card. Whether it is No. 1 in the district or No. 1 in the wild card, the atmosphere is in the hands of the Dodgers. As of the 19th of last month, the Dodgers were 3rd in the district, behind Arizona by 4 games. The gap widened the most this season. After that, the Dodgers went on a hot pursuit, showing a good performance of 10 wins and 5 losses in 15 games.

It’s the best win of the season. Urias, who made his second start after returning from injury, gave up 3 hits and 1 walk in 6 innings, striking out 8 and allowing 2 runs, and succeeded in winning 6 (5 losses) of the season.

Urias was placed on the disabled list on May 20 due to a left hamstring injury and returned on the 2nd after hanging on to rehabilitation for 42 days. At the time, he showed a sluggish performance against the Kansas City Royals with 6 hits and 5 runs in 3 innings and was worried about the loss, but he achieved a quality start in about 2 months on this day.

MLB.com commented, “Since this year’s opener, all of the Dodgers’ starting pitchers have been on the injured list, and several prospects have been unable to overcome the burden.” .

It is also noteworthy that the main hitter, Freeman, played the role of a central hitter by hitting a home run and an RBI. In the bottom of the first inning, Freeman boosted the mood by hitting a preemptive two-run home run from second base. In the ball count 1B1S, opponent starter Yohan Oviedo’s 3rd pitch, 89 mph, lifted the slider on the body and connected it to a two-run arch that went over the left wall.

It has been 15 days since Freeman hit a home run on the 22nd of last month against the Los Angeles Angels. The RBI came 6 days after the game against Kansas City on the 2nd. Freeman stagnated this month with 5 hits in 21 at-bats until the day before. Then, the previous day, he had multi-hits, and this day, including a home run, 4 at-bats, 3 hits, 3 RBIs, and 2 runs scored.토토사이트

He marked the season with a batting average of .320 (111 hits in 347 at-bats), 15 homers, 57 RBIs, 68 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.939. OPS is third in both leagues after Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) and Ronald Acuña Jr. (Atlanta Braves). During defense in the top of the 8th inning, Freeman caught a ground ball from first baseman Josh Palacios with a sliding catch and connected it to a double play, and in the 7th inning, he succeeded in stealing second base, and flew off the ball.

The Dodgers took the lead again in the 6th with Max Muncy’s mid-month two-run four in the 6th inning when the score was tied 2-2, then ran away to 5-2 with Freeman’s timely hit in the 7th inning, putting a wedge in the game. Alex Becia, who came out as a closer, put the three batters to rest and recorded his first save of the season.

Now, the Dodgers will close the first half with two freeway series games against the Los Angeles Angels at Dodger Stadium on the 8th and 9th.
